BLAST & ESL reschedule competitions and looking to take collaborative approach to future governance
BLAST and ESL have collaboratively made adjustments to benefit the CS:GO ecosystem by taking a unified approach to the governance of scheduling tournament dates, rulebook alignment and integrity policies.
Both parties have aligned and adjusted dates for the second half of the 2021 international calendar with the end goal of positively impacting teams’ ability to travel, train and perform at events.
Previously announced dates that were set for the BLAST Premier Fall Groups and ESL Pro League Season 14 have been rescheduled within their existing allocation to ensure competing teams receive flexibility in order to travel and compete. IEM Fall 2021 will also be rescheduled to avoid the existing clash with the Valve CS:GO Major. Professional teams were consulted and informed ahead of this update.
The altered dates can be seen below:
- ESL Pro League Season 14: Aug 16 – Sep 12
- BLAST Premier Fall Groups: Sep 16 – Sep 26
- IEM Fall: Sep 28 – Oct 10
